MAKES: 6-8 mini moussakas
SERVES: 1 BABY/TODDLER & FAMILY OF 4
  • olive oil, for frying
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oregano, chopped
  • 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) lean lamb mince
  • 1 x 600 g (1 lb 5 oz) jar tomato passata
  • 3 large or 4 small eggplants, sliced horizontally 1 cm (¾ inch) thick
  • 260 g (9¼ oz/1 cup) plain yoghurt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200 g (7 oz) cheddar cheese, coarsely grated

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the onion, garlic and oregano
until soft and fragrant. Add the mince and cook until lightly browned. Add the passata and simmer for 15 minutes.

Heat another large frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and fry the eggplant slices, in batches, for 3 minutes each side,
or until lightly golden. Remove from the pan and place on paper towel. Whisk the yoghurt with the egg yolk until combined.

Line the bases and sides of six 10 cm (4 inch) individual ramekins with the slices of eggplant. Spoon the meat sauce into each ramekin until
three-quarters full then pour the yoghurt sauce on top of the meat. Sprinkle grated cheese over each one, and then bake for 20–25 minutes,
or until lightly golden.

Voila – mini moussakas for kids!
